Chaos Theory and Pharmacology: ‘Chaos’ Begins in this Blog

First, I would like to thank another blogger from Korea for the citation of one of my chaotic posts:

그것이 한장의 그림이라면 더욱 더.

It seems hard to believe that the world is represented by a simple line and point.
If you figure it’s more of a piece.

The other images are also excellent – like the Lorenz attractor from Emerson Taymor  – the post in is Korean, but you can understand it using translation built up in Google Chrome or other web navigators.

I would like to share in this comment the other images of strange attractors originally posted in:

Why the name of this blog is ‘Chaos Theory and Pharmacology’?

Because of this:

Human pharmacology is a non-linear science created by multiple variables at different levels of complexity:

1. Drug effects at molecular and cellular levels: drug-receptor interaction (pharmacodynamics) and drug disposition (pharmacokinetics)

2. Effects of drugs on human health and disease: safety, efficacy, and effectiveness

3. Effects of drugs in the society: economical aspects (i.e., pharmacoeconomics), epidemiology (i.e., pharmacological surveillance), healthcare systems (i.e., definitions of essential medicines), over the counter availability of medicines, drug addiction, and many other variables.

“Yet prediction is not trivial or easy. In fact chaos, the mainspring of this article, has shown us that predictability is the exception rather.than the rule, even for what seem like simple physical systems. A human being is immeasurably more complex than any demonstrably chaotic system-the question can be turned around: How can anything be predicted about a person?”
